THE Bervie Braes road will be closed for a further five weeks to allow the stability of the slopes to be investigated after recent slippage.

The closure, which is deemed to be in the interests of public safety, applies from Redcliff to Invercarron Cottage.

An Aberdeenshire Council spokesperson said: “Further to one of our regular and routine inspections, we have commissioned a specialist geotechnical consultant to assess the current status of the upper slope at Bervie Braes as there has been some recent movement.

”The temporary traffic restriction has therefore been extended until May 9 to give the consultant time to survey the area and present their findings to us.”
